Zambia Trip Update – Day Three

DSC_0039STFITC have now completed their third full day of the 10 day coaching programme. We started by visiting David Livingstone High School, which local schools in Swindon (Crowdys’ Hill and Grange Infants School) have links with. The STFITC Team were honoured by planting 3 trees in the schools grounds to consolidate the partnership.

Another exciting aspect of the day was the STFITC Teams first experience of disability coaching. It was a truly spectacular session which demonstrated how important and influential football can be in peoples lives. Clive Maguire; STFC Football in the Community Manager has commented; ‘I have been thoroughly looking forward to expanding our programme overseas in particular by concentrating on the ever growing disability programme. This is a particular passion of mine and today has proven to be an overwhelming success.I will look forward to continuing this throughout the rest of the week.’

The STFITC team continued with the Coaches Education programme, Girls Development and Local Team coaching in the evening. We are looking forward to expanding the programme tomorrow by installing solar panelled lights into a local primary school. These have been kindly donated by the local charity ‘Lights For Learning’.

We would like to thank our main sponsor Intel for providing us with a top of the range ultrabook, which enables us to send home a daily update from Zambia.
